I must say that despite my previous speech I did not mean to imply that the Italian integration negoations would be abandoned. On the contrary I wish to someday see the Italian Republic integrated within our great nation just as much as I hope to restore our current Italian brothers as true members of the republic. Sadly, the terms that were negotiated by the previous administration before the Great War were grossly unacceptable and would have served to do nothing but to weaken Germany via an embarrassing giveaway of land. I will not abandon such integral and long held parts of the republic anymore then I would abandon my right foot. Consistent with this belief I introduce the following legislation:
Republic Preservation Act
- The Forign Minister will be forbidden from surrendering land to another nation in time of peace.
- The above requirment may be overridden by a 3/4 vote of both the Assembly and the Conclave
- Such a vote can only be initiated by the Foreign Minister.
